Re: BONE SCAN: Elderly man with left hip pain and recent fall

heterotopic calcification, arising either idiopathically or as a result of small bone fragments in the soft tissues from either the recent fracture or from small bone chips getting into the soft tissues during surgery. X-rays may or may not show the heterotopic calcification. A repeat x-ray in two or three months may be helpful; by this time it may show the heterotopic calcification.
